About FTD REST API Macros

A REST API macro is a fully-formed REST API command ready to use, or a template of a REST API command you can modify before you run it. All REST API macros can be run on one or more FTD devices simultaneously.

Use REST API macros that resemble templates to run the same commands on multiple devices at the same time. REST API macros promote consistency in your device configurations and management. Use fully-formed REST API macros to get information about your devices. There are different REST API macros that are immediately available for you to use on your FTD devices.

You can create REST API macros for tasks that you perform frequently. See Create a REST API Macro for more information.

REST API macros are system-defined or user-defined. System-defined macros are provided by CDO and can not be edited or deleted. User-defined macros are created by you and can be edited or deleted. 

Note: You can only create macros for a device once it has been onboarded to CDO.
